Since the beginning of the school year I have had a countdown for when fall break finally arrived. Man was it well worth the wait. Jess and I headed up to Rexburg to spend the break with Megan and Justy. It was so refreshing to be back to my old stomping grounds with my best friend and our hubbies. I haven't had that much fun in a long time. We stayed up til 2 every night talking and laughing until we couldn't breathe. We watched movies, went on midnight runs to Ramirez for breakfast burritos, were constantly at the gas station getting candy and sodas, had a spa sesh, carved pumpkins, made hot cocoa, went to a hay maze and fed the pigs, and we even squeezed in a mini road-trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where we shopped around and ate at a local BBQ joint. The boys were in heaven to say the least. I also got to visit with my cousin Emily and baby Mason for a bit and my sister, Paigey, while Jesse got to experience an Idaho past-time of branding cows with his mission buddy. We definitely left feeling depressed wishing we lived in the same place as Meg and Justin, but we are keeping our fingers crossed that we will end up in San Clemente one day as neighbors. It's a bonus that our husbands love each other so much. All in all it was a fantastic trip and made me miss the small town feel, orange sunsets, and farm-land of Idaho.


  1. I LOVE bocce ball! And I am so jealous you went to Jackson, WY and a pumpkin patch this fall. Looks like so much fun.

  2. YAY! cute pictures. I might have stole a few. We miss you guys SO much. seriously! I don't think I have laughed that hard in ages.
